About She Is…
www.SHEis.com is the idea of Jaelin Stickels, a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM), who works at a free standing birth center, Nativiti Birth Center, in The Woodlands, TX and owns her own homebirth business, Holistic Heritage Homebirth, serving the North Houston area. Jaelin’s goal was to create a site where women could come for current evidence-based information related to all areas of women’s health. As a Certified Nurse Midwife, she has a passion for women’s health and everything related to it. The site started out as a simple news repository but quickly grew to include original content from amazing women contributors. Today, the site has a team of support staff and contributors, tens of thousands of social media followers and is growing every day.
www.SHEisSHOP.com is an extension of our SHEis.com website. It allows us to finance not only the continuation of the website but also to give a portion of all profits to women’s charities that we feel are very important. This store is curated by pregnant and nursing mothers showing their likes and needs for fashion and functionality. We are constantly looking for new and exciting suppliers and products to add to our store, so check back regularly for updates.

Jaelin & the SHEis Support Team
We have only one rule when it comes to posting comments on She is… and that is be CIVIL! You can agree or disagree passionately with someone else’s opinion without name calling or rudeness. Any comment that violates this rule will be deleted immediately at the She is.. team’s sole discretion. Other than that, have fun, voice your opinion, make your point. Just respect the others on this page doing the same thing. Maybe if we listen we may just learn something from each other…
She is Limitless. We embody the statement, “She is Limitless”, in EVERYTHING we do. In the articles we select, the commentary we publish, the items we sell, and the charities we support.
“Limitless” is illustrated in our logo with the three dots at the end “…” making our logo a bold statement of our overall mission.
